I tried to live normally, for 30 years even though my body fought a horrendous war on gluten. I had been told to ignore my symptoms and live like they are not there. I had been told that my problems were all in my head. The Md lightlysaid to give up gluten, as if it were as easy as giving up excercise for lent.
I am thinking that Living normally while battling celiac is like: (Well perhaps I haven't tried all of these)
Drowning in a stormy ocean while ignoring the waves.
Picking up 100 lb weight and running a marathon.
Racing the 100 yard dash on an uncasted-broken leg.
Plugging in your computer in the belly of a fish. (I don't think Jonah did.)
If my mind is a little muddled, or the imagination a little too sharp what do you think you can blame?
Note, I have edited this to make it clear. Regretfully, the replies that helped me to know how to change it, may be confusing to future readers. I will take full credit for this, so please do receive them gracefully.
I like your post! CeliacAwareness! Posted to my FB page and told all my family/friends to read if they wanted to know what living with Celiac feels like. You have no idea until you are directly affected! Thank you!
